I noticed that Moses was told to talk to a rock and water would then come out of it. He hit the rock twice and the water came out, but God was angry with him. Why was this so bad that God wouldn't let Moses lead the children of Israel into the land? Why does it say Moses didn't believe God? I know that hitting the rock isn't the same as talking to the rock, but the water still came out of it. Why was this so serious, and if it was wrong to hit the rock, why did God allow the water to come out of it?
Hello Rejoice. I think everyone must have overlooked this question. I just came across it. There is the spiritual representation, that the rock represented Christ, and it was as if he struck the Lord. At the same time, it says that he didn't believe, and that makes me think that it was as much about that Moses had done it one way in the past, and felt he had to do it the same way again to get results. He had struck the rock once in the past and water came out, so he didn't believe that it would happen if he just spoke to it. In reality, it was disobedience. God did allow the miracle, but it did cost Moses to where he wasn't allowed to lead the children of Israel into Canaan, but God did show him the land from a distance.
This does show the importance of obedience to God, and the consequences of not doing things God's way. It can cost you dearly. Moses was told to speak to the rock, and he chose to strike the rock instead. That one mistake cost him entrance into Canaan. Joshua would be used to lead the children of Israel into the land of promise.
